On a breezy, chilly Sunday morning, hundreds of people laced up their shoes to walk in the annual March for Babies event in Cleveland’s University Circle.
The event, hosted by March of Dimes, helps raise money to expand research and education of premature births while also funding programs which help mothers and babies.
